Miscellaneous Court Records

VOTER REGISTRATION – note thanks so very, very much to Kurt Kesling for providing this to us 😊

There was no back to this little booklet but it is obviously a voter registration pamphlet – seems to be the year 1897 as our Mayor, Fred Bandel died the first few days of that year – he is marked with an x meaning he’d not be there to vote

The Top is:
Name of Voter      Sure       Doubtful    Nativity   Post Office       Remarks
                          D R N P U     Same    Ger Irish French Skan Polish Col.   Soldier First Voter FMRA Floater
None of the Nativity is filled in for anyone – mainly there is just a hashmark in D or R – Democrat or Republican
Note: There are no A’s – imagine there were but the outside cover of the little booklet and what would have been the A page are gone.

Bandel, Fred – marked out – has mark for soldier (Fred was mayor for C’ville and died in Jan 1897 so since he is listed and marked out – then I think this is the 1897 listing for voters from upper South Union – Ristines are in the listing and they owned the property  (large farm) where the Ben Hur NH is now)
